    Can someone tell me what this is? It's something about cutting strips to make quilt blocks, I think.

    I have never heard of it. I will be watching...

    Edit: I googled and it is a system of cutting your scraps into sizes that you will use.

    Mr Google told me .... A Quilter’s Lumberyard® is a unique system of scrap management. Use the “lumberyard” approach to cut, organize, and store scraps in usable sizes and you are always ready to sew gorgeous scrappy quilts.

    I too just googled it - this is not unlike the Scrap Therapy system. They too have you cut scraps into usable manageable sizes. Do your own system.

    Sounds like a full time job.

    I don't like the lumberyard or cut as you go system. I keep pieces smaller than a quarter yard in a pile by itself. Smaller pieces go into my scrap bags sorted into lights, mediums and darks. When I want enough for a sample block or an applique I haven't already cut it into small blocks or shapes that have to be used for a specific purpose. I just cut as needed for specific projects.

    I'm of the "sort it but don't cut it" school of thought.

    My dark / medium / light scraps go into 3 large bins with lids.

    You just never know what kind of creativity will come to you and what size or shape fabric you'll need! :)
